There’s a man in the mountains…
Oh mountain man
i talk to you every day!
but you can’t hear me.
oh mountain man
they sing your songs until May-
but i won’t hear them.
Mountain man come down from that elevation
and back into my arms
Mountain man the cold is coming
and i wanted to be the one to keep you warm
Mountain man it’s okay that you left
because i know you wanted me to be happy
Mountain man every time i miss you
i look to the mountains and hope that you feel my message coming from down here.
Mountain man they tell your stories
but it’s nothing i don’t already know
Mountain man you’re so famous!
you really know how to put on a show..
Mountain man how is it like
to look down at the city-
do you see me when you look down?
because i see your face engraved into those mountains every time i look up, i see art.
Mountain man with your axe and pick
cutting down trees and savoring the feeling
Mountain man you said i was like that one maple tree
but i guess i didn’t notice you cut that one down the most brutally.
Mountain man the cold front hurts you
you get filled with resentment and agony
mountain man i am not the cold front
but you still treat me as if i was a 14 day blizzard.
Mountain man i ran to you today!
up those 15 miles i just had to see you again,
mountain man my heart started to fail again
my vision was blurred
my legs came to a halt
and i fell to the floor as hard as i fell for you.
Mountain man i’ll run to you again someday
i’ll see you again and the time spent apart will seem like seconds.
i’ll see you again
I know what you’re going to say
“I told you so”
“You should’ve listened to the medical professionals”
but Mountain man can’t you see
i knew my heart wasn’t the best to keep running with
but you were worth the risk
i knew one day the doctors would be right and i would have one last run before i go
i knew all the consequences of continuing
but there’s one thing i don’t know mountain man
and that’s how to stop loving you.
Authors Note: Okay yeah this one kind of sucks, but it’s apart of a very special series to me so it gets its place on here.
